If you have ever tried to type on your laptop with a Yorkie in your lap then you know my current situation! I simply cannot bring myself to move this little bundle of love as she is sleeping so soundly – or not so soundly! I may need a chiropractor tomorrow to offset the contorted position that I am currently in but at the moment, my heart is too full to worry about my neck!
Ladies, I cannot tell you how many times in my life I have watched romantic holiday movies and wished! Wished that I could be that girl. The one that had the guy that looked at her THAT way. The one that had the leading guy. The hot guy. The smart guy. The gentleman guy. The handsome and debonair guy. The sweep me off of my feet and love me forever guy. The happily ever after guy. Can you relate?
I found myself alone this weekend with time on my hands and to be perfectly honest I was feeling a little bummed. What is a girl to do when she is reminded that Hallmark is currently airing non-stop romantic Christmas movies but to watch them?
I poured myself a nice glass of wine, one puppy in my lap, the other easing his way in, and we watched. Ladies, I do not know about you but I get into these movies! I get lost in them. I connect emotionally. Everything around me is blurred out like a photo that is highlighting a specific subject. Today was no exception, until…
I was hit with reality. My reality. I watched as the girl got the guy. I realized I am that girl! I have the guy. My perfect guy. I smiled from my heart.
What I want to share with you ladies is that when you quit wishing for the guy but hold onto the dream while focusing on being the girl it somehow all comes together.
Be the girl that can go it alone. The one that can be happy all by herself.
Be the girl that confidently walks into a room because she loves her life and all that it is becoming. All that she is becoming.
Be the girl that invests in and loves others.
Be the girl that celebrates others genuinely.
Be the girl that is grateful, the one who finds something to appreciate in everything and everyone.
Be the girl that forgives.
Be the girl that feels worthy of anything she decides that she wants. Be the girl that goes after it.
Be the girl that respects herself so much that she refuses to allow others to disrespect her.
Be the girl that demands the best of herself.
Be the girl who is whole all by herself.
Be the girl that smiles when she looks in the mirror.
Be the girl that cherishes herself.
Be the girl that slays her own dragons.
Be the girl that wants the guy but does not need him.
Be the girl that supports other girls and lifts them up instead of gossiping behind their backs even if they are talking behind yours.
Most of all be the girl that won’t compromise her standards to be with the guy.
Be the girl worthy of the guy.
Ladies, that is when you get not just a guy but the right guy.
And, when you do, do not let yourself go. Continue to be a gift to him every single day. Continue to be you, the real you.
Be the girl that wakes up every single day asking what you can do to make his day better instead of expecting him to make yours better.
Tell him that he is THE guy every single day even on days when he is not being exactly lovable …yes, those days! He needs to know. It also reminds you how blessed you are.
Ladies, happily ever after does it exist. It starts with YOU.
Until Next Time,
